By the Sea, Acrylic on Linen Print
Limited Edition Fine Art Print (20 editions)
40X40cm (Hahnemühle Torchon Fine Art Paper)
Flowers, I believe, are one of God's precious gifts - little bursts of colour that can't help but cause us to smile. A reminder that there are still beautiful things in the world.
I have chosen a plain, raw linen background to highlight the flowers themselves as the focal point - and to complement the beautiful native Australian florals, giving the piece a rustic look. These native florals are so iconic to Australia - home, where the most beauty in life is found.
The little yellow banksias take me back to the sea, my happy place. Mimicking the beautiful golden sand of my country's beaches, always against the sea-blue of the Australian sky, I can almost hear the rush of the tides washing back and forth along the shoreline.
